What do you want them for? They are pretty much good for tials & not much more.

Trevor at Rockgarden (www.rockgarden.co.za EL orPE or somewhere around there) is the Gas Gas agent, will probably have, otherwise Graham Harris in Gauteng, +-R2000 plus postage.

Trials boots are very important when you walk the course beforehand.
I nearly fell wearing enduro boots.

While riding its not so much of a hassle.

Actually it makes quite a difference, first of all gear changes and breaking (especially when wheelying or clearing highobstacles) are easier and second, a trials boot doesn't have a heal like most enduro/MX boots, making shifting your foot on the peg a lot easier, then there is also the added comfort, weight etc, etc...

But to answer your question, you can contact graham harris as previously mentioned or get hold of one of the le riche's, i have their number and will PM you if you want.

Thanks guys, I have been in contact with both Rockgarden and Graham Harris. Rockgarden supply Hebo and Graham does Gaerne. they are very similiar in price and looks (+/- R2000.00). Both great looking boots, so know I must decide which brand i should buy.

I read a few reports on other websites and again the opinion is mixed as too which brand is the better, basically they are both good. One comment was that they are produced in the same factory in Itaty.

Graham also has the Novogar boots that are very popular in SA. I know allot of guys including myself that use them and there are no complaints
